Website Spotlight: Codetalkers


Website URL: http://www.nmai.si.edu/education/codetalkers/

Introductory note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.

++++++++++

I ask the students to work through the following links:

Introduction: Code Talkers
http://nmai.si.edu/education/codetalkers/html/index.html

Languages: Living the Culture
http://nmai.si.edu/education/codetalkers/html/chapter2.html

Boarding Schools: Struggling with Cultural Repression
http://nmai.si.edu/education/codetalkers/html/chapter3.html

Code Talking: Intelligence and Bravery
http://nmai.si.edu/education/codetalkers/html/chapter4.html

Coming Home: Strength through Culture
http://nmai.si.edu/education/codetalkers/html/chapter5.html
